Hannah gets a gold star – she is the first team member from the 2012 team to make her blog debut. Enjoy the thoughts of Hannah McIntyre:
“The first team meeting made it real! Real how deep the poverty is there but also real how I am going to help. I am so excited but nervous at the same time, but now really motivated to raise as much money as possible in the upcoming months so that as a team we can do that little bit extra!
Listening to Emma’s thought for the day on poverty reminded me why I decided to take on this challenge! God cares about the people left in poverty and this is my chance to show that I care as well! It has also made me think about the people who live around me and how I should probably care a little bit more for them than I do! But this is my chance to make a difference to a few people’s lives, to try and comprhend the idea of real poverty and to see what it is like to live each day not knowing whether you will get food.
At the moment I have no idea how I will react but I’m pretty sure, guaranteed (the only one) that it will be life changing and totally amazing. I can’t wait to start to make a difference and to help. I’m really looking forward to it, and even if it means fewer shopping/cinema trips during this year- it will definitely be worth it!
